I feel your pain. That's an interesting dilemma. Of course a shovel gets the bulk but its the remaining bits. I'm thinking of some sort of sive arrangement. You havent mentioned how fine the gravel is. if small enough would it be the end of the world if you left the last bit so gravel there for additional drainage. spread top soil and then planted your grass seed?

Spade first. (A Council Shovel would be ideal: broad and flat)

Then turn an ordinary Rake upside down and rake the remnants.

Then use a stiff Yard Brush to sweep up any odd bits.






(Just noticed my "rank". Smile a; it should be Vegetable Garden Tenderer. (I think?) and b; I don't have a vegetable garden. Smile Smile

A vegetable garden tender is someone who looks after a veg garden (or a boat used to forcibly enlist young men to work in a veg garden against their will). A tenderer would be someone who puts in a bid to run a vegetable garden, or, with a comma, pulled a muscle while hoeing...

I like the boat bit. Boat tender. That'll do me. Smile
